Pokrovskoe-Streshnego Estate

I've passed that estate in the Moscow region many times, but had no idea that it was abandoned. It is hard to realize that such an interesting historical building can be neglected. You'll be impressed by the unusual architecture of that ancient manorial estate: brick walls, gates with turrets, high towers, a church behind them - everything is in a kind of Russian Gothic style. You will not see any elements designed in the usual style of ancient Russian estates at the end of the 18th and the beginning of 19th centuries.
